Oregon City Ordinances and Oregon Laws

  • Oregon City Ordinance No 16-1012, para 11, effective Dec. 2, 2016:  All Oregon City Parks are smoke and tobacco free.
  • Oregon City Ordinance No 16-1011, effective Dec. 2, 2016:  Any municipal police officer may exclude any person who violates any applicable provision of law in any park from the Oregon City’s parks in accordance with the provisions of the Section.
  • Oregon law (ORS 105.682, et seq.) provides that the City of Oregon City is not liable in contract or tort for injury, death, or property damage that arises out of use of land for recreational purposes (known as “recreational use immunity”). That immunity from liability does not apply if the owner makes a charge for permission to use the land. The fee you paid is only for use of the reserved park shelter. Other uses of this park, or any use of the property outside the reserved facility are not subject to a charge and, therefore, the City of Oregon City is not liable for injuries, death, or property damage arising out of such uses of the property for which no specific charge has been made.
